doubt there is a way around it, brute force, especially without any clues, could take from a few seconds to a few days to a few weeks; not worth it really. best to ask the creator for the password

I heard from one of my mechanics that he'd downloaded a illegal file in password protected zipped file from a site and it turned out that he got his PC totally infected with virus after opened it. If you get this file (I hope not) from those BAD sites, please don't open it

Regards

Ask the person who uploaded it for the password.
